Hospitality for Heroes
Hospitality for Heroes CIC, who have been providing up to 10,000 healthy restaurant-quality meals weekly to multiple NHS hospitals, wanted to provide nurses with something a little extra on International Nurses Day, 12th May 2020.
With the support of NHS England, Chloe Delevingne Grant, James Higgins of Malynn & Rockwell Tours and Bladesman Productions they have compiled a surprise performance introduced by Laura Whitmore and featuring recordings from James Blunt, Clean Bandit, Anne-Marie, Zara Larsson, Mel C, Imelda May, Jack Savoretti and Elderbrook.
I wanted to extend my own personal thank you to all of the nurses everywhere. At 6 years old, I was taken to hospital and was only hours off dying with my asthma. I have lost count of the times that I have been looked after, both physically and emotionally. Thank you to each and every one of you. Remembering all of the nurses who have lost their lives to COVID-19.
Concert for nurses everywhere
Multiple hospitals across the country will be streaming the video in communal areas for their nurses to enjoy on breaks whilst also making the video available to all nurses on the day for their own enjoyment.
Alongside the performance, Hospitality for Heroes will be providing afternoon tea to multiple hospitals which can be enjoyed whilst watching the film that has been produced by multi-award winning filmmaker Archie Brooksbank of Bladesman Productions.
